Handcrafted Brooklyn for the Holidays!

New Yorkers need gifts, and Brooklyn's got talent.

It's always a busy season for us here, so over the next few weeks we'll be dedicating our posting time to compiling a list of Brooklyn potters, weavers, knitters, photographers, and all manner of local pros who are ready-willing-and-able to supply one-of-a-kind handmade gifts.

Sure, ya gotcher Seventh Avenue and Montague Street for shoping; but Mamma is tired of pillows, and Daddy has grown weary of sweaters. We betcha you can find something completely original - and affordable - via our local Brooklyn artists.

We'll be adding and reposting each week thru the holidays. If you're a Brooklyn artist, leave a comment with your info and we'll add you to the list. Artists and Bloggers are more than welcome (and encouraged) to link or copy over other sites.



ADK creates custom handmade scarves & knitwear in luxury and natural fibers - chunky and fluffy alpaca, silk, mohair, merino, highland, and totally luxe blends. Custom orders can be ready in four days. Besides the fluffy pieces, there's a super heavy double sided man-scarf in the shop right now that looks like it may be suitable for the Arctic.

Alyssa Ettinger

All of Alyssa's ornaments, tumblers, vases, bowls and demitasse cups are hand-made. Fired in different firings, sizes and colors will vary slightly. That's the cool part - no two pieces are identical. That's art, baby. Special orders are always welcome, and priced accordingly. Turn around time is about two weeks.

Jill picks up a new trick every week, it seems. She sews and knits small accessories and home items, cooks up natural home and beauty items, and designs cool tee shirts and paper goods. She's got a wallet up in the shop that my little sister might actually kill for. Cool stuff.
